Year 2 had a lovely morning working with Kerry, from Northumbria Police, helping Honey Bunny the rabbit. He needed help with how best to solve problems with friendships and who we can talk to about our feelings.
“I’m lost for words… This is an extraordinary achievement. I can’t thank the parents, the teachers and staff enough for this! This is something the school should treasure for how long it is an education establishment. Everybody in the club thanks you all for giving us the chance to achieve this.
When we found out the club couldn’t make it to London because of coronavirus, we were devastated, appalled and furious. We thought INTO Film Awards had been cancelled and we had lost our chance at winning… until this morning when we watched the Virtual Award Ceremony and won!
The club is bamboozled in the sight of winning one of the biggest award shows in The UK! Mrs Baxter, our film club teacher, supported us in the pursuit of winning the award and becoming the best under 11’s film club in the UK. She helped us with basic animation, flip books and many more astonishing activities!
What I remember from the film club last year, is the smiling and bright faces of the children involved and the teachers knowing that they had created something that enhanced over time. This film club has inspired me to reach new heights with art and many more subjects which I did not think I would like!
This film club is not about coming in and watching movies every week!
This film club is not about the popcorn or the food and drink!
This film club is about ambition, inspiration, and mental, physical drive. Pushing you to your limits, creating imaginations within the children young or old, using subjects from the primary curriculum and making it into humorous work which makes the pupils want to work and achieve the highest they can. This is not a club. This is a community.”
This message was received from INTO Film:

The “Jerusalema” dance challenge is taking social media by storm. The song that has transcended its national boundaries, the continent and has people across the world dancing to its vibrant rhythm. They are sharing videos of themselves dancing to the hit song Jerusalema by South African musician Master KG, featuring the voice of South African songstress Nomcebo. According to Master KG, the dance challenge, that has sparked craze around the world, started in Angola when a group of friends recorded a video of the dance choreography that has since gone viral.
From hospital hallways in France and Sweden, to roof tops, public places in Italy, Romania, the UK and Canada, the beaches of Cape Verde, in a Jamaican compound, somewhere in Tanzania; on Facebook, Twitter and TikTok, the #JerusalemaDanceChallenge has hundreds posting videos of themselves or others dancing to the song.
We hope you enjoy watching our version as much as we enjoyed doing it!

Dear Parents / Carers
Historically, at Dunn Street, we have supported this appeal. It will be no surprise that this year will be very different.
Pupils are being invited to come into school for a DOTTY DAY on THURSDAY, 12th November. If pupils would like to, they can come dressed with as many dots as possible. They will take part in a range of activities within their classes / bubbles during the day.
We are aiming to collect £150 as a school. A suggested donation of £1 can be made via our Just Giving Page:
